23- Saying how inexcusable Wand and Sonnen brawl at TUF was while using those same "regrettable" images over and over again to promote the show and the fight.

Hey, man. Not everything must be black or white. Absolutely love UFC, but pointing out a few facts is fun as well. I think this thread is great for that purpose and in no way a statement UFC is all garbage, which is not.

The UFC does rely on entertainment but its always a healthy dose. Nothing too crazy dramatic. People are just noticing this more now because the sport is kinda boring at the moment. Pride focused more on entertainment than the UFC ever has but never took as much criticism.

What about the 2371 times when the UFC has provided us with some fecking awesome fights? Which oddly enough are also entertainment. I know which carries more weight with me.

I tire of all this focus on the negatives.
Mojority of the list applies to modern MMA. Great list.

UFC is pure entertainment. Don't get it twisted. The hype machine will make you think that a mediocre fighter is the baddest top 5 mofo you've ever seen.

I remember so many of these guys on the regional circuit that people would say "No way would they last in the UFC, they'd get smoked in the first round by any top 15"! Now the same fighters are making runs at title shots and are top 5ers.

It's all about exposure and media hype. Before you get to the UFC you are a can, after you leave the UFC your on the "downside" of your carreer.

They UFC is a wonderful hype machine which boasts to have the best fighters in the world. Some of which are, a lot of them aren't. Either way, Zuffa heads, (including myself) have been brainwashed by countdown shows, UFC rankings, interviews with Rogan and entertainment shows to believe that the UFC is "as real as it gets"

And that is basically a crock of shit.
But I will buy the next pay per view. Because I love MMA and I love watching guys that I have followed compete.

And yes the UFC is is 90% based on entertainment.

Hardly surprising considering they put out 10x more fights now then they did before.

People need to step back and look at the reasons the watch MMA: For the fights. Ask yourself, are you seeing enough good fights throughout the year? If you feel like you are getting less quality fights then before, then you might have a good reason to complain. But who here really feels like that? If you strip away all the bullshit, you are left with a lot of very good fights. More then ever before. Yet we don't see thread after thread highlighting this. Instead we get whiney threads focusing on the bullshit.

Its not as if other sports are a beacon of fair play. Far from it. We have the worlds most popular sport ( footie ) being run by the most corrupt dogs you can imagine. Racist, sexist, greedy cocksuckers. People that far surpass Dana. And yet the sport still flourishes. Because at the end of the day, we like watching football far more then we hate these wankers.
